35 C H A P T E R 2 | Compute Figure 2-30: Multitier management groups Finally, you can use the previously described management tools to determine which VMs and which groups are members of other groups. Obviously, this nesting capability opens an entirely new dimension in how you can organize VMs. VMs become objects that you can group much like user and computer objects in Active Directory. This will be more visible when you use this capability in conjunction with the upcoming version of Virtual Machine Manager. True VM mobility Being able to move VMs from one host to another has been a must since the inception of Hyper-V. In the early days of Hyper-V, during the Windows Server 2008 timeframe, only offline migration was possible (see Figure 2-31). The VM was taken offline, moved, and then brought back online. This was done by using the export and import functionality. Although this offered some VM mobility, it was restrictive in that it required downtime for the VM.
